Hi.. just think if the billions of dollars being spent on M$

To reinforce the point in the most blunt manner possible:
No one had ever better dare postulate that the inherent reason
for all of the vulnerabilities in Micro$oft products are due
to any special features of note.
There is no particular network-enabled feature that Windows has
that UNIX didn't implement years before and has done so securely
following established internet design standards adopted by the
ruling standards body (IETF) after intense study and open participation
from all parties who were interested.
Now knee-jerk reactions by various network operators is to
filter, filter, filter and soon, by the grace of a piece of
crap operating system you'll have a much more limited internet
to work with because for Micro$oft's sake they've filtered everything.
Hey I like MS bashing as much as anyone else but the fact is you could say this
of any vendor.. a good recent example being Cisco
